Waterfowl Populations in the Upper Chesapeake Region

Waterfowl Populations in the Upper Chesapeake Region

Date: July 1962
Creator: Stewart, Robert E.
Description: The Upper Chesapeake region is one of the more important areas in North America for migrating and wintering waterfowl. Conditions here affect the welfare of waterfowl populations in the entire Atlantic Flyway. During the more recent years of this study there was a noticeable decline in the waterfowl populations in this region, probably as a result of destruction and disturbance of habitat along with a steady increase in hunting pressure. The purpose of this report is to present information on the distribution, ecology, and harvest of waterfowl in the Chesapeake Bay Region, so that this information can be used as a guide to management and preservation of waterfowl populations.

Keynesian economic policies justified active government intervention in the economy to manage demand and ensure full employment. No longer could it be assumed that competitive market forces would ensure that corporations produced goods and services at a socially optimal level or that income would be distributed equitably. Claims that accounting profit provides a measure of managerial efficiency are based on these premises. This dissertation examines the political dynamics of one particular accounting measurement debate--the debate over the determination of business income. Policies, such as wage/price controls, the excess profits tax, and the undistributed profits tax, brought the accounting income determination debate to center stage. The perseverance of the historic cost allocation model in the face of significant economic changes presents a fascinating glimpse of the important role accounting played in justifying continued reliance on the private property rights paradigm. I use retrodiction (reasoning from present to past) to examine why ...
